EASA Pilot Training |
EASA is a type of pilot license in Europe. Kuwait Flight Academy is an EASA Approved Training Organization. With us, you have an opportunity to become an international airline pilot holding European EASA ATPL frozen license - the highest level of aircraft pilot certification.
EASA 0-ATPL(A) course is designed for students with little to no flying experience and that want to pursue a career in aviation according to EASA regulations.
You will start with PPL(A) and, upon obtaining the necessary flight experience, will continue with IR(A), MEP (multi-engine aircraft) and CPL(A) flight programs.
After successful completion of the zero to ATPL(A) course, you will issue an EASA CPL(A) license with ATPL(A) theory completed and will be authorized to act as a co-pilot (First Officer) on aircraft engaged in commercial air transportation.
- To be at least 17 years old.
- To be Class 1 Medical holder.
- To be proficient in the English language.
- To have sufficient knowledge of Mathematics and Physics.
Theoretical preparation lays the foundation for practical flight training.
During the zero to ATPL course, you will complete theoretical courses for PPL(A), IR(A), MEP(A), CPL(A) & ATPL(A) Theory.
After successful completion of the written exams, you will have to pass practical skill exams. There are 4 practical exams at the end of each module: PPL, IR, MEP & CPL.
You will need to demonstrate the ability to:
- Operate the airplane within its limitations.
- Complete all manoeuvres as smooth and as accurate as requested by the EASA.

- 5 hours of night flying including one cross-country flight and 5 solo take-offs and 5 landings.
- 5 hours on a complex airplane.
At the end of the PPL module, you will have to pass theoretical exams at the CAA testing 9 subjects (Meteorology, Navigation, Communications, Aircraft General Knowledge, Principles of Flight, Air Law, Flight Performance and Planning, Human Performance and Limitations, Operational Procedures).
For the ATPL theory, there are 14 exams you have to pass to prove a sufficient level of knowledge appropriate for the privileges of the holder of an ATPL (A) in accordance with the EASA Part FCL requirements.
